Can I bring other animals to the farm to have my images made with my horse.

Due to the nature of the surroundings you would have to clear that with the property/business owner, it's just not my call.

How many outfits may I bring for my session?

I have no limits on how many outfits you can bring for your session. Please keep in mind that these sessions are only 20 minutes long and are being shot outdoors.

What if I cannot make my session date and time? Will I receive a refund?

No refunds will be given once your booking is made. However, you may reschedule your session date or time if you do so within 72 hours of the original booking slot, provided that there is an available time slot open.

Do I have to appear in the images with my horse?

You do not have to be in the images if you don't wish to be.

I don't want pictures of my horse. Can I just bring my children out for family portraits?

This event is geared towards fall photographs of your animal(s), and may include you, or even your children. But no, this is not a family portrait day and should include your horse. If you would like to do family portraits I encourage you to purchase a full regular session. Details may be found by clicking here.

I have more than one horse boarded at Rolling Hills. Can we get all of them in the session?

Absolutely, the more the merrier. Just keep in mind that the sessions are only 20 minutes long and if you have more than one animal it may be wise to book two sessions back to back in order to allow enough time for group and individual shots.

I have seen some of your "creative editing" work and would prefer my images be done in that fashion. Will I be charged extra for that kind of editing?

All of the images taken during your session will be edited and ready for basic portraits. This means they will be in full color as they are shot. Black and white, sepia, and creative editing enhancements will cost extra. Fees will depend on how creative you wish to get, but I promise, won't hurt your bank account enough to notice.
